Go on son keep at it.
I hope you have the support of all us fans, not because you are a red, but because you're right.

Well done to the lad.

Kids locked away at home are often not getting fed and some are getting abused by crap parents, so school and food are lifelines.

It's a strange time tbab.

Im hearing and seeing what we would call good parents/families suddenly being bad

What I mean is happily married couples getting divorced or facing problems because they are spending more time together than they have for years and it's a problem

Previously Good parents who are slapping up their kids because they are simply together more compared to when they went to work and saw little of their kids

Not suggesting it's everyone obviously but the stats and figures of DV are rising and amongst families that for all extents and purposes were decent happy families

Good points, if uncomfortable to read mate...I walk or cycle by a home for kids abused by parents and it breaks my heart to think of what views on in lockdown homes.

We usually only see each other I suppose at summer hols or Christmas all day long, so now familiarity breeds contempt I guess....we just get bpred and angri with partners and kids if we dont really like and love them??

Just thinking out loud, but domestic violence and abuse and anti social behaviour has shot up this year...God help us in winter lockdown.

Chatting to Igor one night about his house being empty as he was WFH and kids at clubs, now school so it's another weird angle that we get used to company, then it goes.

I get this,as wife was in work all through and it was my daughter and I Inn the house and then she went to school in August and I felt lonely first time ever.

Yeah it's a strange one when that happens.

I was speaking to my brother who has a young family and has been forced to WFH. He hates it as his work means he has to lock himself into a room away from his young kids. But what he hates more is the lack of banter that would happen in a workplace.

I suppose you get used to something and it changes it takes time to adapt. The whole kids leaving home and parents struggling or being "lost" makes sense now

This is in no way excusing or making excuses for parents who abuse their kids.

I was part of a large family, in terms of kids. And my old man was a factory worker. Mum was a stay at home mum and in my life (and what I saw around me) most kids had a "fear" of the father but it was mums who gave you a slap etc for misbehaving

Sometimes you'd think "what did I do" after a slap from mum and as you get older you realise being at home with 6/7/8 kids with other pressures maybe she just had a bad day and lost her rag.

Obviously I don't mean severe beatings and torture etc, just a clip around the ear or even chucking a slipper at you. Often resulting in mum crying (which hurt more) and saying why do you do this etc.

This was the norm (yes I'm old) and I wonder if some of that is happening now but it's seen as DV

Hope that makes sense. Not justifying it or anything just something that occurred to me. Not even suggesting our mums were right but I can see how it can affect a person

"paying more tax" is an interesting one right now.

I'm wholeheartedly behind a bigger, better state, a model far closer to the Scandinavian one which would require higher taxes.

However paying more tax right now in the UK with this Tory government wouldn't bring us any closer to the Scandinavian model in outcome. In better education, pensions or general life style for those toward the bottom of the pile.

Look at what these vile corrupt toffs are doing with the money we do have. Almost every day there's a new example of public funds being stolen and gifted to unqualified friends of Tory MPs - literally billions of pounds trickling upwards to those who need it least.

These twisted fecks don't need more money to squander, first and foremost they need to be booted out, investigated and tried for blatant corruption.

I was born in 1964 north of Belfast and mum hit us with a strap, and teachers hit us too.
Dad would too, but not beatings.

I do/did not hit my daughter and had to go outside or to bed or for a cycle as I have a red mist temper if challenged or if people behave badly, but just would not it my kid.

Not even a slap, and could not even send her to bed as she cried so much.

We are just softer now I guess...or afraid to get social services involved.
